Rock 'n' Roil: Debates on Who's No. 1, Racism, Sexism and Criticism

Robert Hilburn hit it right on the nose when referring to the Stones of the 1970s, saying that other bands made better albums and or exerted more influence but couldn't overcome the Stones' dominance in terms of historical importance and fame.

All politicians, fighters and rock bands have high and low periods, and that is to be expected. But very few can stand the test of time.

Guns N' Roses may be considered the best rock 'n' roll band around today, but it's the Rolling Stones who still are called the greatest rock 'n' roll band in the world.
